KALABAGH: A retired soldier of the Pakistan Army fell prey to a fraudulent bank transaction as Rs 2,81,000 vanished from his bank account in Kalabagh.
Retired army man, Awal Munir, a resident of Kach Tandar Khel, was deprived of funds that were deposited in his bank account.
As per details, Munir’s funds were transferred after he had provided details about his bank account to a man who pretended to call from the bank for an investigation.
Account holders from a scientist to a pensioner have been deprived of their money, while the authorities so far have failed to eliminate the root cause behind it.
In a similar type of scam, a pensioner, identified as Shaukat Ali, was deprived of Rs 100,000 from two of his bank accounts in Dera Ismail Khan on Thursday.
He urged the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar to look into the matter and provide him justice.
Similarly, on November 7, a group of hackers withdrew more than Rs 400,000 from the account of a school teacher after obtaining his ATM pin code.
Speaking to media, he too had said that the hackers called him from the helpline of a bank and sought his pin code. The callers had complete details of his account which was why he was compelled to share with them his password, he said.
